It's all fun and games until the giant claw descends from the sky and threatens to make you the unwilling plaything of a surly teenager.


This brilliant (very) short film from SoKrispyMedia captures the sheer panic experienced by brave men that have, perhaps foolishly, made the inside of a claw machine their preferred hang-out spot. The dread that rises in one's throat as the mechanical clunk of a dropped quarter brings the tiny mechanical world to life.

Or I'm guessing that's what it's captured. I've never been inside a giant-sized claw machine before. Maybe visual effects artist Sam Wickert has. Either way, thanks for passing this along, Sam!
